room for kids : metallic glam

posted on: Wednesday, September 28, 2011

It's a new space from Nicole at Little Liberty!

Sometimes you get a client who is happy with your vision and gives you the complete go ahead -- my favourite type. I also had a big budget for this room, which didn't hurt.

I loved putting this room together as there were no boundaries and I was really able to create something special. The moose head gave a different dimension to the room and the wallpaper really brought the whole look together in a subtle way. The decorative accents also gave life to the space.

vibe
Glamorous, French-inspired with silver accents.

who lives here?
A very stylish nine-going-on-nineteen year-old!

décor
The colour and texture combinations were chosen to be rich with sparkly silver accents -- sequins, a black velvet bed and splashes of silky magenta. The back wall has been papered with a shimmery textured silver wallpaper. Here is a picture up close:

furniture
I had the bed head custom made and it turned out beautifully -- exactly how I had envisioned it. I also love the glamorous desk and chair I found. My little client can enjoy the room even when she is doing her homework (or should I say doing her Facebooking!).

best buys
My best buys were the super cute owls on the floating shelves, I found them in Bed Bath and Table -- they were just $29.90 AUD for the set.

nicole's fave
There are so many! The silver pouffes, the silver trim bedding and accessories for the bed... and I really love the moose head.


top tip
Creating this look can be expensive. I think if you don't have the budget to go all out it can look a little tacky, there is a fine line. So if you want to do this on a budget just make sure you keep it simple and don't go too overboard.

  1. This is for a 9 year old? Dang. It must have been fun to decorate this room, but personally I like my kid's room to look like a child sleeps in it, not a 19 year old :/ But its whatever the client wants right ;)

  2. Beautiful selection of decorative accents here. My ten year old daughter would love this too. She has "grown up" taste too!

  4. Cool;) I assume that there comes still all the persomal stuff so I think that it looks great base for a nine year old girls room!
